How to make healthy momos

  1. To prepare wheat momo recipe, divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
  2. Roll out a portion of the dough into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling. Try to get thin edges and a thick center if making an old-school pleated momo. Also, if making in large quantity, you can roll out a huge thin sheet from the dough and using cookie cutter, quickly get equal size momo coverings.
  3. Place 1 tbsp of the prepared stuffing in the centre of the circle.
  4. Take little water and apply it using your finger on the circumference.
  5. Fold over to make a semi-circle and press the edges lightly with your fingers to seal it.
  6. Bring both the corners of the semi-circle one over the other and again pinch it with your fingers to seal it together.
  7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 to make 11 more whole wheat veg momos.
  8. Place the healthy momos in the steamer plate. Maintain some distance between them so they do not touch each other and get stuck
  9. Steam the veg wheat momos in a steamer for 10 minutes. Do not overcook the momos or else the flour will become dense and dry. The time required for cooking depends upon the thickness of your momo cover. If they have a glossy appearance and feel non-sticky, your momos are steamed and ready. Our whole wheat steamed veg momos are ready!
  10. Serve atta momos immediately. You can enjoy the healthy momos with chilli garlic sauce or schezwan sauce.
